I can’t believe it’s almost February, the month of love! On Galentine’s Day, show your besties just how much you love them with this charming fudge and cheese board. The star of this lovefest is the Dark Chocolate Fudge with Sea Salt. It’s made with Karo® Light Corn Syrup so it’s extra smooth, dreamy, and delicious. And it plays the perfect compliment to the rich cheeses, cured meats, and tart dried cherries on the board.

Once the fudge is made, assembling the board is a breeze. I chose a scrumptious selection of cheeses, meats, and accompaniments in various shades of red, purple, pink, and white to really *up* the festiveness of the spread. I just can’t get over how pretty it is.

It all starts with the Karo® Light Corn Syrup Dark Chocolate Fudge with Sea Salt. This super-fudgy fudge recipe is my favorite! It’s so easy to make and is, by far, tastier than any other fudge I’ve made. It’s got the perfect balance of sweetness to saltiness. With its luxuriously smooth texture, it is melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

I love that this fudge recipe can be made in one bowl and in a matter of minutes. Honestly, the hardest part is waiting for it to chill so you can cut into it and enjoy.

Begin by mixing the Karo® Light Corn Syrup and evaporated milk in a microwave-safe bowl and stir well until blended. Microwave on high for three minutes and then stir in the dark chocolate chips until melted.

Stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat 1 to 2 minutes with a wooden spoon until thick and glossy.

Spread the fudge mixture into an 8-inch square pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt before cooling.

Chill the fudge for 2 hours or until firm. Once it’s chilled, you can cut it into heart shapes, with a heart-shaped cookie cutter, to make it even more festive for Galentine’s Day!

Be sure to save every last morsel of that fudge! You can stuff fudge scraps into hollowed out strawberries and raspberries for a decadent fruity addition to the board. Let no fudge goodness go to waste!

I used our 18″ x 12″ ash wood board to build this beautiful spread on. Start by arranging the dark chocolate fudge hearts with sea salt in the middle of the board. Place the fudge-stuffed strawberries and raspberries around the fudge.

Fill a small serving bowl with honey and position it in the upper left corner of the board. Fold the Genoa salami slices and place them in a small serving bowl in the lower right corner of the board. Arrange the picante salami chips under the bowl of honey on the left side of the board.

Next, cut a wheel of brie cheese into a heart shape with a cookie cutter. Place it in the upper right corner of the board. Add a wedge of cranberry Yorkshire Wensleydale in the lower left corner of the board. Arrange the sliced cranberry-covered goat cheese log down the right side of the board. Cut slices of white cheddar cheese into mini heart shapes with a cookie cutter and stack them in the bottom right corner of the board.

Place a small bunch of red grapes in the upper middle space on the board and another small bunch of red grapes just below the goat cheese slices. Stack the beet crackers just above the cranberry Yorkshire Wensleydale on the left side of the board. Add a pile of the pistachio and pomegranate crisps just above the fudge hearts.

Put the strawberry wafer cookies in the bottom center of the board with the dried cherries to the left of them. Fill in the remaining spots on the board with the candied walnuts and honey sesame cashews. Place some whole strawberries and raspberries in various places across the board, for added pops of color.
